1st Annual McMaster Optimization Conference:
Theory and Applications
(MOPTA 01)
August 2-4, 2001, McMaster University
Hamilton, Ontario, Canada
http://www.cas.mcmaster.ca/~oplab/confs/mopta01/
The 1st annual McMaster Optimization Conference, (MOPTA 01)
will be held at the campus of McMaster University. It will
be hosted by the Advanced Optimization Lab at the
Department of Computing and Software.
SCOPE
The conference is planned as an annual event aiming to
bring together a diverse group of people from both discrete
and continuous optimization, working on both theoretical
and applied aspects. The format will consist of a small
number of invited talks from distinguished speakers and a
set of selected contributed talks, spread over three days
with no parallel sessions. Our target is to present a
diverse set of exciting new developments from different
optimization areas while at the same time providing a
setting which will allow increased interaction among the
participants. We aim to bring together researchers from
both the theoretical and applied communities who do not
usually get the chance to interact in the framework of a
medium-scale event.
INVITED TALKS:
Distinguished guests will give one-hour long invited talks.
Confirmed invited speakers include:
John Dennis (Rice University)
Michael Todd (Cornell University)
Lieven Vandenberghe (UCLA)
David Williamson (IBM Almaden)
CONTRIBUTED TALKS:
Contributions are solicited for presentation at the conference.
Each accepted paper will be alloted a 25 minute talk.
Presentation of recent results is encouraged. Authors wishing
to speak at the conference should submit the abstract on which
the talk will be based, in ASCII or LaTex source, to
terlaky@mcmaster.ca
by April 30, 2001.
Please use "MOPTA" in the email subject line.
All decisions on acceptance will be made after the closing day of April 30, 2001. A preliminary program will be available before the end of May.
